These Kids Today 

A new study from the WHO and NICHD shows that American youths are no more prone to violent behavior than kids in Israel, Portugal, Sweden, or Ireland. The money quote, however, is that the "findings fail to explain international statistics showing that U.S. youth are more likely to die of violent causes than are youth in other developed countries." Maybe because kids here have guns?

A very different problem for some kids is Diabetes Type I. Researchers announced that they have a hopeful procedure for preventing the disease from developing...by blocking the destruction of insulin-producing pancreas cells. This would be a Good Thing if it works.
